The STAINMASTER® brand, with agency SCOUT, develops a digital campaign that humorously highlights the things people do to fight dust and allergens

ATLANTA, Nov. 8, 2017 — From chugging honey to vacuuming the vacuum, people will go to great lengths to fight the allergens they hate.   

While the lengths we go may seem odd, strange-looking or downright funny, the issue is real with roughly 50 million people in the United States suffering from airborne-related allergies. *

Thanks to the STAINMASTER® brand, now there's a carpet and cushion system that is designed to reduce dust and allergy-aggravating particle buildup and help homeowners create a clean and comfortable home.

The new STAINMASTER® LiveWell™ carpet system is made with kid and pet safe AllerShield™ technology. The technology helps reduce the bonding of allergen particles to the carpet fibers. So when homeowners vacuum, allergen particles are easily picked up. In fact, it's up to 90 percent more effective** at releasing allergen particles.

“Health and well-being is incredibly important to today's consumers, and we learned people will go to great lengths to create a healthy home environment for their family,” said Bob Costanza, SCOUT co-founder and chief creative officer. “The STAINMASTER® brand stepped up to help address this consumer need, then we used those insights to inform the creative strategy for “The Lengths We'll Go.”

“SCOUT captured the key insights for STAINMASTER® LiveWell™ carpet and found the perfect balance between humor and realism to bring our story to life,” said Jackson Pettit, Brand Manager, STAINMASTER® Brand. “The vignettes in the spot, however exaggerated, are ultimately tied to real things people do.”

“Those of us with allergies know that there's no length we won't go to try and fight them,” said Betsy Morrison, SCOUT creative director. “We've portrayed this allergen fighting battle as a vibrant and playful dance, creating engagement through comedic scenarios that are real and relatable to both allergy sufferers and sympathizers. The tension is further compounded in the opening vignettes through music, production design, and cinematography, reaching its climax with the introduction of STAINMASTER® LiveWell™ carpet system, 'a beautiful way to fight allergens.'”

At the core of the national campaign is a 30-second video and supporting assets that are being presented across numerous digital platforms.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
